We have four distinct seasons in Tasmania and each one brings something new to the garden. Our first spring was filled with surprises as the bulbs we hadn’t planted reared their beautiful heads. I always believed bulbs were hard work, having to lift and store them every year. I am pleased to discover, if they are ignored, the reward is greater with the passage of time. The daffodils are a fine example, giving a glorious display this year
The German iris ‘Florentina’ and Hyacinth appear in unexpected places
The delicate scent of Daphne heralds the oncoming spring; the Helleborus and snowbells are early to bloom
One of the most amazing revelations were the huge clumps of Cymbidium orchids thriving without any protection from the elements. I had always thought they needed nurturing in a protected environment to even consider blooming
The birds and bees love the Grevillea
The fruit trees are blossoming
The lilies are my favourite, so elegant and simple
The Waratah completes the early spring garden
There is much more awaiting with the shifting of the season…..
gorgeous blooms – you’ll have to start charging admission ! 🙂
I’ll keep that in mind when you next come to visit 🙂
How gorgeous! Just as your garden is coming to life, mine is beginning to shut down for winter. I love the Waratah.
I have Daphne. I hope it survives the winter.
I have a yellow Waratah that will be blooming soon. Called ‘Shady lady’ and given as a gift for my 50th birthday 🙂
Great imagery and writing Kathy, you could be a pro!
Is that an offer?
Just love the photographs Kathy. Your garden is amazing…the orchids are beautiful. Look forward to hearing more about your piece of paradise 🙂
We’re hoping you’ll stop by for another visit, we’d love to see you 🙂
